Are you struggling to figure out creative ways to establish blocking within a scene, or wondering why the scene doesn’t feel quite right even though the dialogue and acting is great? Well we are here to help!

While set decking and costume design can bring a lot to a scene, it’s blocking that brings it all together. Regardless of the type of story, blocking can make or break a film.
